The Baltimore Orioles (9-12) have had some ups and they have had some downs on the most recent road stretch that they were on.
Baltimore was able to take two out of three in Texas against the Rangers, before flying down to Miami to win a game against the very tough Marlins team. The O’s had a day off before flying out to California, as they were able to pick up a victory against the Athletics in a three-game set.
Leading the way offensively in the three-game set for the O’s was Pedro Severino who plated the lone run in the team’s 3-1 loss to Oakland on Friday. Severino laced an RBI single in the Bottom of the Sixth that was able to put the team on the board that day.
Baltimore saw a 7-2 loss against Oakland on Saturday, with the offense that day coming from RBI doubles by Chance Sisco and Trey Mancini.
The O’s bats came alive in the finale on Sunday, as the team was able to pick up an 8-1 victory. Things got started on a great note, thanks to an Austin Hays homer in the Bottom of the Second Inning, and again in the Bottom of the Fourth.
Maikel Franco hit a homer in the Bottom of the Eighth, which was combined with some small ball and eventually a Mancini RBI single that gave the team the 8-1 score and eventual victory.
Earning his second victory on the mound was John Means who tossed 6.1 innings on Sunday, the starter was able to strike out six batters in what was a great performance on Sunday.
1495 Sports is proud to bring the following Post Game Video Press Conference featuring thoughts from Manager Brandon Hyde along with stars John Means and Austin Hays from the team’s 8-1 victory on Sunday:
Now the team will be back in Baltimore to host the always tough New York Yankees. The first of four-starting tonight (Monday) at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. On the mound for the O’s will be Matt Harvey, who was able to earn his first victory since July 2019. Thus far Harvey has been pitching well for the O’s as he has been able to strike out 16, while walking three in 19 1/3 innings this season.
As for the Yankees they will have Deivi Garcia on the hill. Garcia is being recalled from the team’s alternate training site to make his season debut. The Righty is ranked as the team’s No. 3 prospect by MLB Pipeline, and it is expected for fans to see some great mix of pitches on the mound, which includes a slider that he hopes will help him succeed in his time in the Bronx.
